I was very excited when I ordered this pad. It was for the first dressage show on a new horse of mine. I was not expecting during the late summer horse show that my horses sweat would go all the way through the terribly thin pad and I would have to go down Center Line with Hideous sweat stains showing through the pad everywhere that I could see. Needless to say I would call this a disposable pad because I threw it out right when I got home. There's no way that this could ever be a pad you take to a show or even use in front of friends. Do not make my mistake!
